Security in Container-Based Virtualization Through vTPM

Shohreh Hosseinzadeh, Samuel Laurén, Ville Leppänen, Security in Container-Based Virtualization Through vTPM. In: Proceedings of the 9th International Conference on Utility and Cloud Computing, UCC '16, 214–219, ACM, 2016.



Cloud computing is a wide-spread technology that enables the enterprises to provide services to their customers with a lower cost, higher performance, better availability and scalability. However, privacy and security in cloud computing has always been a major challenge to service providers and a concern to its users. Trusted computing has led its way in securing the cloud computing and virtualized environment, during the past decades.

In this paper, first we study virtualized trusted platform modules and integration of vTPM in hypervisor-based virtualization. Then we propose two architectural solutions for integrating the vTPM in container-based virtualization model.
